  1. Add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl and stir them together.
    dry ingredients compained
  2. Place the bowl in the stand mixer and add the water. Stir it until it is all combined. It will look like cookie dough. It only takes a minute. Cover the bowl with a cloth and let sit 8-12 hours. We make ours at night and let it sit overnight on the counter.
  3. After it has risen for 8-12 hours. Flour your work surface and shape your dough into a ball. DON'T knead the dough. Once you have done this set it back in a floured bowl and cover with a cloth and let rise for another 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes Preheat the oven to 450F. If you want a round bread place an oven-safe pot in the oven to preheat also. After the oven is preheated. Which will take another 30 minutes.
    risen flour
  4. Remove the Pot place the dough in the pot. Put a cover on the pot. Don't preheat the cover. Bake the bread with a cover on it for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes if the bread is to your liking remove. If you want a thicker crust remove the lid and bake another 5-15 minutes Remove and let cool.
Recipe Notes

This recipe would make an awesome bread bowl too.


If you don't have 8-12 hours to let the bread rise. Use 1.5 teaspoons of yeast and let it rise for 5 hours

    Love your YouTube channel but my only
    minor gripe is when each time you say
    ‘Good morning modernsteaders’
    Dunno know but for some reason it sounds so condescending .
    Sorry but thats how it comes across:(

      Lol funny you should say that Anita but my husband finds Al’s intro annoying as well (no offence Al ! We both love your channel) 🙂

      My 6 yr old son and I love your intro. I say it to him every morning, “Good morning modern Sean’ er.” He stops whatever he is doing and says it with you whenever I play your videos.

      My kids and I love watching this channel. My 6yo says, “Daddy, let’s watch the New Yolk City guy!” I think the opening line each time is great!

    4. Jacky says:

      I watch Al’s video every day since the last two weeks that I became a subscriber and I like to hear him say good morning. I know everyone is different, so Al don’t change anything about your videos it’s what sets you apart from everyone else, it’s perfect and who wants to change perfection? LOL..

    Easy enough, just a bit too white for my taste, hubby should like this though, he is a plain white sandwich bread guy 😁
